Nostalgic Folk Art was born in 2004. I came up with Nostalgic Folk Art name for my paper mache figures because I love the older things that remind me of my childhood and of innocent times. They are figures of folks both childish and impish and I love vintage folk art so putting nostalgic with folk art was/is a perfect and fitting name for my lil figures and business.

Thank you for taking the time to visit!

And when your done visiting here, I'd love for you to check out my work on my etsy shop,

The Best to you always!

RIP Mr Gene Wilder

my number 1 and 2 favorite movies are Willie Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (the original version) and Young Frankenstein  (Frank en sht een)  and they inter change in order too.   Young Frankenstein is still so funny every time i watch it.  My hubs and i still say at certain times  "Put ze candle back"  and when something is super fabulous, i may sing, not as well as Madeline Khan, "sweet mysteries of life i have found you"  or the hump on Marty Feldman moving or Abby Normal. 

Grandpa Joe was my dad eventually and Charlie was the sweetest kindest angel.  And when Veruca Salt became a bad egg, i couldnt believe they removed her so quickly, she was brilliant! tho i never understood the boat trip that got crazy it still was such a magical movie for a 10 yr old to see on the big screen, oh the place where all could be eaten!

Thank you so much Mr. Wilder,  for the joys and the laughs.  I imagine your riding in one of those magical helicopter glass ceiling smashing things up in a wonderous place in heaven.


  1. "Young Frankenstein" truly a classic!! We laugh every time we see it. The whole cast was brilliant. They don't make 'em like that anymore. Gene is now with Gilda. ♥
    When my hubs sees me in my old tattered clothes I still love to wear he lovingly calls me "Charlie Bucket." :> )


My First Written Review/Kinda like your first dollar, I treasure this dearly

"Carol Roll is a relative new-comer, creating folk art for four years, now. Her paper mache figures reflect significant talent. At first glance, her angels, people, mermaids, and animals may appear cute and dear. At closer look, they are sophisticated, with detailed, expressive faces, each unique. Roll's work is anything but mass produced. It's the real deal. "
